Senate defeats attempt to undo BLM’s methane rule

Gwen Lachelt’s chance encounter may have swayed deciding votes
Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyoming, chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, leaves the chamber following a surprising win for environmentalists and Democrats and a blow to the fossil-fuel industry, as the Republican-led Senate failed in a bid to reverse an Obama-era regulation restricting methane emissions that escape from oil and gas wells on federal land. Barrasso was a sponsor of the joint resolution had predicted the rule would be overturned.
